These are beautiful! You really know when to "stop" and not overwork a piece.

The entrance to the ferry building has some interesting shapes and division of space. Cool. Reminds me a little of William Wray's work.

Thanks Steve! The weather conditions created these greyed colors but even in brighter light situations these colorful greys are crucial.

Sandra, it is nice that you say this but I think that one of the most difficult things in painting: When to stop. It helped me a lot, this is Richard Schmid advice, before I start to ask myself what am I interested in and what do I want to say with this painting. When I think I have achieved it there is no need to prattle on. Thank you!

Hi Ed, especially the ferry entrance is something one wouldn´t usually paint there, because it is so beautiful all around. But these manmade ugly things are also there and this is maybe the connection to William Wray. Thanks Ed for dropping by.

I agree with everyone. I think these are wonderful paintings. And thanks to Sandra and Stefan for bringing my attention to the Richard Schmid advice. It is so well put!
